It couldn't be more true that you really need to eat where the other Roman's eat. Da Francesco serves good honest food at very reasonable prices. Best pizza's, fabulous burrata with dry tomatoes and anchovies and the tastiest view and roast potatoes I have had in a long time. Highly recommend the spaghetti vongole. Staff are very efficient and the... More

Great casual restaurant near Piazza Navona. Highly recommend. Sunday was extremely busy and we felt like we were sitting on top of one another, but this is typical in these types of European restaurants. (Monday was better) Had the pasta carbonara with black truffles and the mozzarella and black truffle pizza. Can't go wrong trying those. Delicious.

If you are wandering around piazza navona and what to eat a good pizza you can go there. You may have to wait a longer time than for the other restaurant but the quality is very good !

After three days of eating non-stop in Rome, we went for lunch at Da Francesco, by recommendation of our host at the Corso Vittorio 308 B&B (which was excellent to, by the way). We had a Tuna carpaccio, a Fungi pizza, a T-bone Steak, a Carchupi-a-la-romana and Classic Tiramisu for desert of course. All the dishes were delicious and perfectly... More

My daughter and I were recommended to go here by our hotel. Very authentic restaurant with very yummy food. We got there around 7:00 am but it filled up very quickly so don't get there too late. Also very friendly staff and English menus made the meal very fun and user friendly. Highly recommend.

Amazing food and fantastic service. All their pasta is freshly made and to die for (they have some fantastic truffle pasta dishes), and the pistachio tiramisu is food-coma worthy. Would recommend making a reservation - we had dinner here two nights in a row and witnessed the restaurant becoming full within 5 minutes of it opening its doors. We were... More

Went here for dinner and had a lovely Italian meal. We were greeted by very friendly staff and the service was first class. Very big selection of food on the menu, we went for the bolognese pasta and the fillet of beef with roast potatoes. Both meals were very nice and cooked perfectly. Well worth trying if you are near... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
